All - anybody know why my engine won't start with the DPR test harness plugged in on a stock 16V CIS-E setup? I bought the harness from TT so it's the correct one, not homemade. When I pull it back off and reconnect the wire connector to the DPR it starts right up. Just trying to set my mixture, thanks,

Thanks, 134hpvw. I will try that. I also found something on the web saying you have to have the multimeter hooked up to the test harness before starting the engine. I guess it somehow completes a circuit. I did not know that...I'll try it shortly,

Yeah, that would definitely keep it from starting.
No meter (properly connected, and set to mA DC) connected to the test harness = open circuit. The DPR is effectively unplugged. ;)
